SHINEDOWN performed two songs — “Bully” and “Unity” — on last night’s (Monday, March 26) episode of ABC-TV‘s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”(which actually aired this morning). You can now watch video footage of their appearance below.
SHINEDOWN‘s fourth studio album, titled “Amaryllis”, arrives in stores on Tuesday (March 27), almost four years after the band issued its hugely successful 2008 album, “The Sound Of Madness”. SHINEDOWN frontman Brent Smith told The Pulse Of Radio that even though the band really came together on that last effort, they didn’t want to rest on their laurels while making “Amaryllis”. “We’re never really a band that’s gonna ever be satisfied,” he said. “We’re never gonna be complacent with ‘Oh, well, that’ll do.’ We’re the band that’s looking for the doors that everyone is afraid to find, because we like that. We like pushing the envelope constantly. It keeps us on our toes.”
The first single from “Amaryllis”, “Bully”, has already topped the rock radio charts. The new single is called “Unity”.
The million-selling “The Sound Of Madness” yielded six chart-topping singles like “Second Chance”, “Devour”, “If You Only Knew” and the title track. It debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, spending 120 weeks on the album chart.
The release of “Amaryllis” is being accompanied by an e-book called “For Your Sake: Inside The Making Of Amaryllis”, a 75-page, “completely interactive” e-book that contains commentary, photos, video footage and other content exclusively chronicling the creation of the new record.
SHINEDOWN will lead the 2012 edition of the Avalanche Tour, which kicks off on Tuesday in Anaheim, California, with ADELITAS WAY, NEW MEDICINE and ART OF DYING also on the bill.
